Yusr International School started its academic journey in the academic year 2006/2007, and is considered one of the most well-known academic institutions in Jeddah – Kingdom of Saudi Arabia who follow international curricula and foster the Islamic values.
The school is Cognia accredited throughout all grade levels and follows the IB-PYP program in its primary years for children aged 3 – 10. The school is under the process of achieving the IB-MYP accreditation for our middle school program. We are an academic institution with over 20 nationalities who share one objective that is providing academic excellence to all YIS students.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of students, and we select staff of the very highest caliber who are committed to excellence and share this commitment.
Our academic excellence is a commitment to enable every child to find their place within the school community and in time within the wider world. Based on our school’s motto “Learners Today… Pioneers Tomorrow”, and as imperative as we feel enriching and stretching the students is academically, we share a collective sense that by exposing them to such a broad range of experiences whether sporting, creative or generous, whether as a team member or a leader, we are helping them to grow and develop their character.
It is the personal approach, the relationships between teachers and students and the mentoring and guidance that also contribute to the warm sense of community which characterizes YIS.
